“Very enjoyable stay at The Moorings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2006

After reading 'crushed hopes on cavill' i was left wondering whether we should cancel our booking and find alternative accommodation. Thankfully i decided to stick with it. The 2bedroom apartment we stayed in on the 12th floor had fantastic views over the river and hinterland. It was very spacious, clean and tidy. Bedrooms are of a good size, especially the master bedroom which contains an ensuite. The wrap around balcony also allowed for all day sun. Pools and grounds are well maintained and tidy. We found the location exellent. Just a short stroll up Cavill Av to the main shopping areas. Also there is no need to book a special tour bus to take you to Movie World, Dreamworld or Wet n wild as there is a bustop just meters up the road (Ferny Av). Here Surfside buses will pick you up for a very reasonable fare. Drop off is on the otherside of the road on return. We found the hosts very pleasant to deal with.. I would definitely stay at The Moorings for any further surfers paradise holidays. I guess you need to bear in mind though, that as each apartment is privately owned, furnishings and decor varies. My advice..definitely ask for river/hinterland views on booking. The only negative word i have to say about The Moorings is our room didn't have a cheese grater. But for $105per nite (Aus $) who's complaining! Well worth the money.

I was appalled by the level (or lack there of) of service at this apartment.
The website leaves so much promise, showing lovely apartments, amazing views and close to everything.
Location was perfect, were okay views but the apartments were awful.
Everything was so dirty and dusty, it was near impossible to stay there long periods of time during the day. There was broken glass from the walls of mirrors in the living area.
Nothing seemed to work properly, electical faults as well as having people come in and out of the apartment, allowing no room for genuine privacy.
I was appalled by the lack of assistance and rudeness of the hosts and the way they treated tourists from out of town who were wanting to experience all of Surfers Paradise.
My word of advice, the internet photos and descriptions may seem appealing but for the lack of service, dirty and near unlivable apartments that were provided on arrival, it's definatly not worth a pretty penny.
